I have taught first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade. All have been great adventures! I attended Snow College, UVU, BYU and WGU for my masters program. I love helping students become lifelong learners and I love that I learn something new each year from my students.  I love to travel and take all the opportunities I can get. My top destinations are Finland and Iceland. My goal is to see the world and I’m slowly getting there. The Great British Bake Off is also a favorite as I enjoy baking and cooking. Haunted houses and learning history are also included on the top of my priority list.

Hello! I’m Mrs. Goodwin and I want to make this year fun and successful for everyone.  I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your child.  After fifteen years of teaching preschool I moved to 5th grade, where I hope to stay for a very long time.  My job is also a hobby, I really do like it that much.  Teaching and children are my jam.  It is important to me that every student feels valued in my classroom.  Outside of that I love decorating, boating with my family, and reading, especially the classics.  My favorite superheroes are Rocket & Star Lord (Guardians) and I think Diet Mt Dew is a food group.

I am so excited to teach 5th grade again this year. I love teaching! I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age. I grew up here in West Jordan until I was 12 years old. My family then moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I learned a lot in my experiences down there and I’m grateful for the different perspectives I gained, especially culturally.  I moved back to Utah to go to college on a music scholarship. I met my husband during this time and we have 3 children. We raised our children for the most part in West Jordan. My own kids went to Hayden Peak for almost all of their schooling. I love this area and the people in the community. I love music! ( I love to sing and play the piano or the oboe. I also love to listen to all types of music, but especially 80’s “New Wave” music and 90’s alternative. Haha!) I love to travel, refurbish old furniture, and eat good food! Dark chocolate and Coke Zero can solve all problems. 😉
